It used to be that admirers of electric cars who wanted a 200-miles-plus range had to get in line for a Tesla and spend upward of $70,000. The new Chevrolet Bolt changes all that.
Don't let the Bolt's mundane appearance deceive you and mask the car's advanced technology. Like a Tesla, the Bolt is able to go well over 200 miles on a single charge, is quick, quiet and can be a viable option for those ready to embrace a fully electric car.
Take a turn behind the wheel and you immediately feel the Bolt's silent, instant electric torque when you tap the throttle. With the equivalent of 200-electrified horses on tap, this small hatchback accelerates with gusto and at 6.8 seconds from zero to 60 mph, it's as quick as some sports sedans.
